32 + 4

That's how far along I am today. Literature says that Egg can get hiccups now, and she does! I can certainly feel it, and sometimes I can see it, too. It's fascinating. I'm still on bed rest, but the good doctor said once I am at full 34 weeks that can be amended, since then it's alright if I should have her early. I can't wait! I still don't have a stroller, car seat (most important at the moment), and some or other little things I wanted to buy and couldn't.

As I said, I have been knitting. This is the Lacy Cardigan from the Spring 2008 Reynolds kids book "Best Friends: 14 Designs to knit for Children and Dolls" (#82451): I didn't use the recommended yarn, but some or other alpaca mix from my stash.

This is knit from less than a skein of Schaefer Anne (a very special gift, I might add). When I started it I didn't have a measuring tape to get gauge so I guessed the size, and it turned out big. Way big. Egg will grow into it, I'm sure. Next spring it'll be just perfect. There is no pattern, since I made it up as I went along.

There's one more thing in the make, but I haven't finished sewing it up yet.

What beautiful sweaters, I admire your talent she just making up patterns as you go.

Stay put only a few days to go on bed rest. Wishing you a very speedy and healthy end of pregnancy. :)
